Day 7: Jesus completed the work He was sent to do.
After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. So, when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit. John 19:28-30
When Jesus spoke His last words, “It is finished,” He didn’t mean it was complete for the time being or in that moment, He meant it was complete for eternity, paid in full! He intended to complete the work He was given to do - to seek and to save those who needed reconciliation. No one but Jesus in the flesh could accomplish such a task.
Action: Spend time today studying what Jesus did to reconcile you to the Father by reading these scriptures: John 17:4, Luke 19:10, Romans 3:23-25, and 2 Corinthians 5:18-19. Follow that time by worshipping to this song: It Is Finished
